78 RPM record GRINDING noises is removed (with Goldwave) so that we can hear what went onto the record instead of nearly a century of misuse. Dates, if given are a guess.

When you attempt to restore these audio files you are tossing out all of the high frequency response. That is NOT the proper way to restore a recording, most 78rpm records from the 30's and 40s had a frequency response of up to 10- 11 KHZ and by tossing out what you call the "grinding noise" you are tosing out the Hi frequencies too like an "S" sound. Cool edit pro (adobie audition) and Dart can both help restore these recordings without destroying the high end. if you over process it you get almost like a squeek on the high end. Sometimes it is more preferable to listen to some slight hiss then toss it out. You do get an "A" for effort here.Goldwave isnt the greatest tool for this kind of thing. it Sounds "OK" but could be better. You may also wish to put up unrestored copies in a losless format so someone with better equipment and software can have a go at a cleaner restoration.
It is always nice to see someone try a restoration . Good luck !
